Eco Showboat at Denis Burke Park

The Eco Showboat is a river expedition from Limerick to Enniskillen on the Mayfly, the first solar electric boat to make this journey, taking place this summer to raise awareness of climate change. The project is the brain child of artists Anne Cleary and Denis Connolly. The artists are taking a break from their travels to share their experiences at Junction Festival. Film screenings, artists talks, poetry readings and workshops will be held at the Pangolin Pavilion, an artist-designed sculptural pop up space constructed from parasols. They also invite you to spend a few moments observing freshwater biodiversity with them during a "Slow Looking" workshop.
